Post Hospitalisation Home Support

The Challenge

Discharge from hospital can be planned or advised at short notice ahead of a weekend. Hospitals are keen to fast track discharge for various reasons. Returning to your home without additional support is less than ideal at a time when you want to recuperate and regain your independence.

Finding suitable in-home care quickly after a hospital stay can be challenging, as a prompt transition is often necessary.

Identifying caregivers with expertise in post-hospital care, including wound care, medication management, physical therapy, or other specialized needs.

Coordinating with healthcare providers to ensure a smooth transition and continuity of care between the hospital and in-home setting.

Navigating insurance / funding coverage and managing the financial implications of in-home care services, which may not be fully covered.

Dealing with the emotional strain of ensuring the well-being and recovery of a loved one while entrusting their care to others.
